Len Brown has expressed his sympathies to those who have lost loved ones in the Pike River mining disaster.
The Mayor says he wants to pass on his love and deepest regrets to Grey District Mayor Tony Kokshoorn and the people of the region.
“Over the past few days, we have all held our breath, hoping for the best, fearing the worst,” says Len Brown.
“Today we join our nation’s family, flags at half mast, sharing the despair.”
Aucklanders will be able show their respects for the victims of Pike River and the people of the West Coast in condolence books at the Auckland Town Hall and all libraries across Auckland.
The Mayor is working with church leaders to organise a memorial service to be held in Auckland. Details of this will be released in due course.
The Mayor will represent Auckland at the national memorial service expected to be held in Christchurch.
